What is our answer to God’s Wisdom? We have to answer the call — it is just a question of how.
God’s Wisdom seems counterintuitive… so how do we know if we’re on the path to wisdom?
Is true wisdom available to all of us or just to select sages?
Are the things we count as blessings the true blessings we seek or the forged evidence thereof?
If God’s wisdom works out so much better for us, what causes us to pick other forms of wisdom?
The world claims all kinds of different ways to get real wisdom… but will any of them actually give us wisdom?
With fireworks, the best ones are not necessarily just the ones with the best packaging. Likewise, Agur reminds us that the strength the world focuses on isn’t always the most impressive.
We all love a good story of a “reversal of fortune,” but are they always good? What makes them good? Agur helps us to consider that in the next verses of Proverbs 30.
As we continue a series on Agur’s wise words in Prov. 30, we turn to things that bring wonder and how wonder can lead us to God (or away from Him without the proper “translation”).
